To lose someone you love through death is tragic. Losing someone you love-your soul mate and best friend-via an ambiguous and unexpected text message is devastating; it can destroy your soul. When you lose a loved one, you go through the process of grieving that enables you to accept their loss and eventually let go. When the person you love severs you from their life and walks away without offering an explanation, how can you do the same? How can you understand and accept the loss so that you can move on with your life? Forever Love is a collection of poetry that considers the process of rebuilding a life after such a callous and devastating loss. The fourth volume in a series, it explores how author Vicki Case worked through this dark period in her life, searching for closure and answers to her questions. In the midst of her grief, she discovered the power of the written word in healing and began composing poetry that reflected the raw emotions she was experiencing. Forever Love contains soul-revealing and vividly honest descriptions of her emotions as she looked for a way to move beyond the hurt and devastation of a love lost.
Poetry was my salvation after losing the love of my life & my sole mate.
I write at night and on the weekends.
I discovered that writing was my salvation after I lost the only man I have ever loved.
I am currently compiling a new book of poetry about Australia and its beauty. I have also turned my literary skills to writing fiction.
After a turmultous and abusive marriage I found love and solice in the arms of an incredible man. We shared an amazing 14 months love affair. During this time he taught me to love myself again and to reach for the stars. Then one day; out of the blue & totally unexpected, he severed me from his life with a SMS. I plumetted into the abyss. My world turned dark and I struggled to perform the simplest of tasks. I found that writing down my toughts, anger, frustrations and more helped. I discovered that what I was writing was poetry. People saw my work & encouraged me to publish my poetry; sharing it with the world. The rest is history.
Poetry. I didnt choose poetry; it chose me.
I have grown enormously since my inaugural book - Unconditional Forbidden Love. My poetry has grown with me. Where it was once a compilation of words in a poetic form; it now reflects the poetic prose in a mature format.
Sharing my darkest moments of love and loss with the world & the fear of being judged adversely for doing so.
The accolades that I have received have been amazing and supportive. It has also allowed me to form incredible friendships with fellow authors.
No I dont believe so. My books wouldn't be what they are if I hadn't had to endure the journey I did.
Absolutely. I now have a new found confidence for both myself and my literary work. I have been encouraged by so many people.
I wrote the poetry as it came to me. The ebbs & flows of my emotions dictated when and where I wrote.
Absolutely. Fellow authors & poets have been extremely supportive and encouraging. A few of them even; at no cost; created YouTube videos of my books etc. There are so many amazing and generous people out there who are willing to help & they ask for nothing.
My friends are my editor when it comes to my poetry. I send my friends my work and they inform me of spelling errors, inaccuracies etc.
A man I affectionately call Eros influenced my writing. Prior to knowing him I never wrote at all. After meeting him & falling in love with him words again to flood my head; words of the love and affection I had for him. I began writing them down and the rest is history.
Give it your all. You just never know where it will take you.
No, I just hope and pray that anyone who reads my book/s will take a few minutes to write a review.
My favourite book would have to be Sheeza by Clancy Tucker.My favourite film is unequivably Medicine Man
A fellow author make me two books trailers / Youtube videos for my books and they are awesome & have a more profound affect than any review or book summary
I am currently writing my inaugural fiction novel titled 'Chameleon Blue'.
I grab a scotch & coke and go and talk to my dogs.
Write, write and write some more. Ask people to read your work and take every comment as constructive; not as a criticism.
